Kate Taylor, artist

Kate Taylor is an abstract artist born in Cambridge, England and now works out of her studio in Toronto, Ontario. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western University where she was taught painting by the internationally-renowned artist, Paterson Ewen.

Kate’s work explores the unique forms and colours of nature and how they are an integral part of our lives. Working solely with a palette knife, she works in acrylics, often adding a resin epoxy coating to super-saturate the colours. Kate primarily works on birch panel, staining the background to reveal the woodgrain – this becomes an integral part of the composition.


Kate’s work is in private collections in Canada, the UK, Europe, Australia, Brazil, the US, and the Philippines. Kate is a member of the SolidColour and ColourShift Abstract Art Collectives – a group of individuals committed to capturing and abstracting the world around them.

Kate is represented by: ArtProfile in Toronto, Arta Gallery in Toronto, Copley Society of Art in Boston, GalleryM in Thornhill, Galerie203 in Montreal, Latitude 44 Gallery in Toronto and Petroff Gallery in Toronto.
